Welcome to Day 48, Band 7 of the Fantasy All-Star Rock Band Challenge!
Congratulations to the Ozark Mountain Daredevils' BUDDY BRAYFIELD, who joins the band on keyboards!
Now pick a SONGWRITER for the band!
Pick artists who represent the best in Southern rock --- be it true southern rock, or rockabilly, or blues/blues rock, or country/ country rock/ alt-country....
I'm not going to *require* that a nominee be from the South (that's Southern US, by the way, in case our friends in Europe, Asia or Oz were wondering ); just that their sound has typically been considered part of one of the above southern genres. (I can think of several major "southern rock" groups right off the top of my head that are/were based in California, the UK, or Australia....)
You may choose any southern rock artist from the 1950s on, male or female, living or dead. Since it's a theme week, there's no "retired band member" restrictions, either.
